At Intel Labs, I am the lead artificial intelligence researcher for programming systems research and the principal investigator and co-founder of the joint Intel/NSF CAPA research center. In academia, I have appointments as the executive director of AI research and development for the PRECISE Center for Safe AI at the University of Pennsylvania and as the chair of the PRECISE industrial advisory board.

Overall, I perform research in artificial intelligence with a focus on machine programming, anomaly detection, deep learning, and autonomous systems. I try to build and maintain deep academic and industrial ties. I'm wildly interested in machine programming. In 2016, I co-founded the machine learning and programming languages (MAPL) workshop and was its program and general chair in 2017 and 2018, respectively. In 2019, I accepted the invitation as the chair of the MAPL steering committee.

I am an adjunct professor at the University of Colorado-Boulder and a lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania on anomaly detection for safe autonomy. I was previously the director of engineering at Machine Zone, where I oversaw the engineering of Game of War and Mobile Strike. When not doing research, I work on my online gaming software company, Nodeka, LLC, which I founded in 1999.

My (somewhat dated) CV is here. I have over 50 peer reviewed publications and issued patents with around 100 patents pending. I've given several dozen invited research presentations at places like Berkeley, BMW, IBM Research, Penn, Stanford, VMWare, UCLA, and UW.
